    Cool [SOLVED] Dual Head Monitor setup

    I have my Dell D630 laptop and an external monitor working almost perfectly. However the external monitor seems to be the "Main" monitor as all windows want to open there and all icons show up there and so on. How do I get my laptops LCD to be the main monitor?

    I attached my xorg.conf file
